Hey, Washington Post

Thanks for your latest contribution to civil discourse and focusing on the important things:
It may say more about Washington than White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler that she’s known in the West Wing for her fabulous shoes.
Yes it may. And it says quite a bit about the Washington Post that this first line is followed by another three hundred words about one of the President's most important advisors.

All of which is dedicated to her choice in footwear. All.Of.It.

So totally almost journalism and completely patronizing.

Good thing as a paper the Washington Post can rely on it's elaborate Diploma Mill Scheme.

Here’s the link to the WaPoS shoes article.

Apparently they’re still alive, or at least still moving. The quarterly earnings report shows the newspaper division is still losing money, and their print circulation is down 7% compared with a year ago.

So the dying WaPos has shit the bed. Again. Eeew, call the nurse.

It’s embarrassing and uncomfortable to see and smell their last throes. Time for them to hide themselves behind a paywall so they can die in peace, without unseemly displays like this shoe business. It’s the decent thing to do.
